In light of the continued safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Wounded Heroes Golf Classic that was scheduled for Sept. 28 has been canceled.

“Canceling the event was a hard decision,” said Russ Spicer, chairman of the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes. “The Golf Classic is a major source of fundraising for our Foundation and this was going to be a special 10-Year Anniversary Celebration, hosting over 50 wounded military heroes who were looking forward to a day of golf and special recognition. We felt it best to cancel the event out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of the Heroes, and the many sponsors, volunteers and local residents. Our Golf Classic will return on May 24, 2021, at which time we will celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary.”

While this year’s Golf Classic is canceled, the Foundation’s mission to raise money in support of local Wounded Heroes will go on, with an online auction that opened Sept. 8 and continues through Sept. 30. More than 150 items are available for bidding.

Since its beginning, LFWMH has donated in excess of $1.2 million in support of combat-wounded military veterans and their families through Birdies for the Brave (the PGA Tour’s military outreach program). 100% of donations go directly to the charities we select to target needs of Wounded Heroes located in the South Carolina and Georgia Lowcountry.
